Betty MacDonald fan club fans,
Betty MacDonald fan club research team is working on a new Betty MacDonald exhibit.
If you are interested in joining this Betty MacDonald fan club project you are welcome.
Several Betty MacDonald fan club fans shared very interesting details and info regarding Betty MacDonald's fascinating experiences in Hollywood.
Marjorie Main was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress as Ma Kettle in 1948 for her role in The Egg and I.
Celeste Holm was the Oscar winner instead of Marjorie Main.
I wished Marjorie Main had won it because she really deserved it.
Marjorie Main was outstanding.
I'm very happy for Leonardo DiCaprio who won the Oscar this year.
He had to wait for 22 years and it was his 6th nomination.
( see info below )
Congratulations dear Lenonardo DiCaprio!
We are going to publish some new Betty MacDonald fan club interviews by Betty MacDonald fan club founder Wolfgang Hampel who is working on an updated Betty MacDonald biography.
Good luck dear Wolfgang Hampel!
Betty MacDonald fan club honor member Mr. Tigerli is a great guy even if he is a bit strange.
My British friends would say he's a bit eccentric but that's like Onions in the Stew, don't you think.
Do I agree with Betty MacDonald's description of women and men? Oh yes I do!
Betty MacDonald was such a very intelligent lady and she knew very well what she was writing about.
If we believe that Mr. Tigerli acts a bit strange what can we say of the behaviour of some men?
Betty wrote the truth! By the way I don't hate men! I love them - some of them - especially mine!
Let's go to the bookstore and enjoy a new breakfast with Brad and Nick.
We are going to start Betty MacDonald fan club ESC 2016 voting very soon.
You can win two Grand Final tickets.
More info are coming soon.
My family and friends adore Traci Tyne Hilton's books very much.
We are very happy that she is our new Betty MacDonald fan club honor member.
Betty MacDonald fan club fans from all over the world like Linde Lund's interview with Traci Tyne Hilton very much.

Betty MacDonald fan club interview with author Traci Tyne Hilton

Here are two recent interviews. The second one is a "character interview" with the characters from my newest book, which is kind of fun.
Betty's work gives us a glimpse into a world that we would have never known without her. Both life in the Olympic Mountains and on Vashon are so different from regular town and city life. I think readers love to escape, and the more remote the location, the more different the people we get to meet, the more we love the work! Betty's books help us all escape to a time that is getting farther and farther away, and a place that doesn't even exist anymore, but even when it did, it was unexpected, hilarious, and stunningly beautiful.
I wasn't a bit bored! Betty MacDonald is definitely my favorite author and I loved having a chance to talk about her work and why I love it so much!
Dearest Traci thanks a million for this wonderful interview.
Lots of love to you and your family.
Lots of love to you, as well! Thank you.
Leonardo DiCaprio didn't have an Oscar, and that was hilarious, according to the internet. There were memes about it. Someone even made a video game where players stepped into the actor's shoes and tried to chase down that elusive award.
It all stemmed from DiCaprio being just about the only major cast member from Titanic to not be nominated for an Oscar when that film won 11 awards (and was nominated for 14) in 1998.
Well, the internet will now have to find somebody new to laugh at. On Sunday, at the 2016 Oscars, DiCaprio finally won his prize for Best Actor, for his work in The Revenant.
His win wasn't exactly unexpected. DiCaprio had won every major pre-Oscar award of the 2016 awards season, including the Golden Globe and the Screen Actors Guild award. But with DiCaprio, there's always the sense that someone might swoop in at the last moment and win instead.
DiCaprio thanked numerous collaborators, from his Revenant co-star (and fellow nominee) Tom Hardy to Martin Scorsese, who directed DiCaprio to two previous Oscar nominations, for The Aviator and The Wolf of Wall Street.
But DiCaprio saved his most glowing praise for Revenant director Alejandro G. Iñárritu, who'd won his second consecutive Best Director trophy earlier in the evening: "You have forged your way into history these past two years. What an unbelievable talent you are. Thank you to you and [cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki] for creating a transcendent cinematic experience for all of us."
DiCaprio concluded by talking about how The Revenant had to keep switching locations during filming, because the production team wasn't able to find cold enough temperatures to keep going. And the longtime environmentalist tied that into the battle to stop climate change.
"Climate change is real. It is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work together and stop procrastinating," he said in the most passionate moment of his speech. "We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters ... but who speak for all of humanity."
He concluded with gracious thanks — "I do not take tonight for granted" — and then slipped backstage, finally an Oscar winner.
EU criticizes Turkey for summoning German envoy over Erdogan satire
"This move doesn't seem to be in line with upholding the freedom of the press and freedom expression, which are values the EU cherishes a lot," Mina Andreeva, a spokeswoman for the European Union's executive arm, told a daily news briefing.
Right groups and the West regularly criticize Ankara for its track record on human rights but the 27-nation EU has still sealed a deal with Ankara on March 18 to return all migrants and refugees reaching European shores from the Turkish coast.
Berlin, the key driving force behind the Turkish deal, has said press freedom was non-negotiable in its ties with Ankara.
The EU hopes the migration agreement, badly criticized by rights groups, would give it breathing space as it struggles to control an influx of people fleeing wars and poverty in the Middle East and beyond.
